Information about your NDIS pathway and how United Disability Care can assist you in your service support
My First Plan
Your NDIS First Plan is the start of a lifelong relationship with the NDIA. Your NDIS Planner will be initially focused on continuity of your existing support when transitioning to the scheme.
With thousands of people with disability transitioning to the NDIS, the First Plan aids in the simplification of the transition and has been designed to allow swift entry into the scheme. Your First Plan will be finalised after your Planning Meeting.
The implementation of the First Plan, allows clients adequate time to assess their needs, develop goals and explore the available options for their next plan.
Your next plan may include additional supports that provide you the opportunity to explore options to get involved in your local community such as sports clubs and community groups.
Plan Management (Financial Management)
You can use the services of a registered Plan Management provider who can assist you in making payments on your behalf to the people and organisations that support your plan.
Plan Management is funded as part of your NDIS plan and will not take away any funding allocated to you. To get more information about Plan Management support, contact us today and we will provide more information to help you make these choices. You can also click through to the services section on our website.
Starting My Plan with United Disability Care
Once your plan is approved and you receive your funding, all previous
funding for your disability supports will be stopped effective immediately. Therefore, to ensure your existing services continue as per normal, it’s
important to let United Disability Care know that your plan has been
approved as soon as you receive it.
Depending on your situation there are a range of people who can help you implement your plan and support you to start receiving supports. You can start your plan on your own if you are self-managed or with the support of a United Disability Care Support Coordinator.
Our Support Coordinators assist you in strengthening your ability to coordinate and implement your plan, helping you to boost your formal and informal network and coordinate a range of both funded and mainstream supports that you choose.
Your United Disability Care Support Coordinator will assist you in achieving your plan goals, through the provision of:
Service Agreement development
Service referral and community linkage
Resolve queries and concerns
Reviewing My Plan
Before you start your Plan Review, it can be helpful for you to explore options to get involved in your local community through activities such as sporting clubs, local theatres,
special interest groups and community gardening.
The below steps should be considered when reviewing your NDIS plan:
Think about your life now. What supports are currently helping you and which ones are not.
Identify your strengths, interests, opportunities and challenges.
Consider your current informal, community and main stream supports.
Think about your future goals. What do you want to achieve?
Write the above points down and schedule a meeting with your United Disability Care Service Leader in anticipation of your review as this may help with your preparation.
As a Participant of the NDIS and a member of the United Disability Care family we will support you during your Plan Review.
HOW OUR NDIS SPECIALIST CAN ASSIST YOU
My name is Greg O’Donnell. Over the last few years I witnessed firsthand some of the frustrations when establishing NDIS supports. NDIS can be complex but with a little inside knowledge can make all the difference to accessing the amount of individual support that is needed.
As an organisation United Disability Care are passionate about helping people with disability accessing the right levels of support for their individual circumstances.
I personally have first-hand knowledge of the NDIS. In 2008 both my wife Lynn and my late daughter Kristyn were diagnosed with incurable genetic disorder called Spino Cerebellar Ataxia Type 7. My desire to support the two most important people in my life propelled me into becoming a specialist on the available supports for people with disability.
My personal experience and new expertise led me to a career at United Disability Care in February 2018. Since then, I have completed over 180 NDIS plans and 40 plan reviews, often achieving supports for people that they were unaware that they were available to them.
Are you having an NDIS Information session?
Greg is an experienced speaker and is available to speak to companies and their employees associated with NDIS at no cost.
The passion and knowledge that Greg has to share is well received and he is more than willing to share his story, experiences and provide some practical advice for those working with NDIS plans and clients.
Greg is a husband and father who has been intimately involved with the challenges of DSQ and the NDIS. The strength he has taken from his personal situation gives him the drive and determination to make a difference to as many people with a disability as possible. This is Greg’s way of honouring his daughter’s memory.
Please contact our team to request Greg as your next key note speaker – 1300 454 850.
